Abstract: Objective To analyze the relationship between the clinical manifestations of TCM patterns and high-resolution CT (HRCT) imaging features in primary Sjogren’s syndrome (pSS) patients with interstitial lung disease(pSS-ILD).Methods A retrospective study on 75 cases with pSS-ILD was conducted to analyze the distribution of TCM patterns and chest HRCT staging and their correlation. Results Among 75 cases, there were three principal TCM patterns, which were deficiency pattern, excess pattern and deficiency-excess complex pattern.They could be further divided into 8 patterns in which and lung qi and yin deficiency pattern were the most frequent(29.3%), lung qi and yin deficiency with phlegm obstructing lung pattern(28%). Correlation analysis showed that the more severe the lesion degree of HRCT imaging was, the more frequent the lung qi and yin deficiency pattern was(85.7%, P=0.020).Conclusion TCM pathogenesis of pSS-ILD is a deficiency-excess complex pattern with a deficiency root and excess manifestation. There is certain relevance between TCM pattern and the lesion degree in HRCT imaging.
